nhl jerseys authentic ‘I’ve actually got a few decisions to make’ says Claridge ahead of Evesham clash

SALISBURY FC have moved up to third place in the table following an excellent 5 2 away win at Slimbridge and boss Steve Claridge believes “there isn’t anyone that plays football like we do and I don’t care what anyone says”.

The Whites have had a rocky start to the season as well as being struck with injuries, but now look to be on a steady incline, with players returning to full fitness.

Claridge anticipated that the Worcestershire club would also be pushing for promotion and is expecting a tough game and said: “We will give them the respect they deserve, they are a decent side.

“They’ve got some really good players and they’ve had a real go in the transfer market for players, they have got good quality there and we know that.

“We know we fully expect at the end of the season for them to be very close but hopefully behind us, but they will be right up there no doubt about that.”

Adding that he sets his side up to get the best out of what they have got rather than setting up against and added: “If we concentrate on what we have got to do we are as good as anyone at this level.”

chicago bulls jerseys cheap bad judgment call throws Brady

buy cheap jerseys bad judgment call throws Brady

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots have been all over the news this week, as the NFL has come down hard on them for allegedly deflating footballs. The coverage has included lofty statements by the NFL about the integrity of the game. That concern seems to be fairly newfound.

When teams were found to be heating balls during winter games, which both warm and inflate them, the league issued whopping fines of $25,000.

It does seem that a case can be made that the Patriots ball boy, who actually a 50 something super fan, may have deflated the balls just before the AFC championship game against the Indianapolis Colts. Why he did that is unclear. It could be as simple as his wanting to be a hero, influence the game like a real player and please his idol Tom Brady. None of that is known.

While no cheating can be condoned in any activity, what we do know is that after four months of and hours of interviewing Tom Brady and others in the Patriots organization, no evidence was produced that ties Brady to any wrongdoing.

That didn stop the NFL from fining the Patriots $1 million and two draft picks. Tom Brady, despite no history of rules violations, is losing about $2 million and a lifelong reputation as a straight shooter.

There a larger issue at work in this case than what happens to Brady or the Patriots. It about how justice is meted out in America, and who gets to do it.

Let get beyond the footballs and the celebrities for a moment to give some thought to what just happened. The NFL, which is a billion dollar private corporate entity, has just served as the accuser, investigator, prosecutor, judge and executioner in this case, and nobody has asked how itcan do that.

Imagine the conversation we all be having if this case wasn about the NFL and the handsome millionaire Tom Brady, but about Wal Mart or Home Depot and a woman stocking shelves.

Let say that Wal Mart suspected the woman of stealing things, before it had any direct evidence, and recklessly caused her embarrassment and damaged her reputation. By doing so,
chicago bulls jerseys cheap bad judgment call throws Brady
itopened itselfto a lawsuit and significant damages. In order to protect itself, the company appointed itsown law firm, which handles all lawsuits brought by employees, to undertake an investigation of the matter.

The investigation not surprisingly sustained the company claims, without much direct evidence, by asserting that it was probable than not that the employee stole something and that her friend, who we call Ms. Brady, likely knew about it. Wal Mart fired the employee and her friend, a salivating press rushed to report the findings, as though they actually the work of an independent reviewer. The had no day in court. No rules of procedure. No independent judge. And no jury of their peers to turn to.

If that had actually happened, the country would be shocked and personal injury attorneys would be trampling each other to take the case against Wal Mart.

But the NFL is somehow immune from the normal and accepted rules of justice. While ithas pretended to be a neutral arbiter in this case, nothing could be more ridiculous. The league and its brand are worth many billions of dollars. Any activity that might diminish the value of that brand is of direct financial interest to the league.

It worth remembering that early in this case the league leaked a series of rumors about the Patriots and Brady that it could not prove and that weren accurate. By doing that, the league opened itselfto legal action from the Patriots and Brady, and it knew it.

Everything the league has done since has been to protect itself against that action, including naming its own law firm to the situation and present an report that looks surprisingly like a legal brief against claimants. The best defense, as they say, is a good offense.

The NFL is not and cannot be a neutral party in cases like this. Itcannot with a straight face appoint investigators who work for it. And itcertainly cannot both protect itselfand be a fair judge of others.

The NFL is acting in a way that no other company or organization in the country would be allowed to act. The press has helped. And too many others have been doing exactly what the NFL wants us to do, which is to focus on the ball.

Alan Caron is a partner in the strategic consulting firm of Caron and Egan. He can be contacted at:There is a collective bargaining agreement between the players and the owners in which the players give the league wide latitude to police misdoings. This is where your Wal Mart analogy is flawed. Brady has appealed the decision by the league; he retains his right to challenge the decision in court. Clearly the lockerroom attendants did not deflate the balls without guidance from somebody. If not Brady, whom? Brady made clear his preference for under inflated balls and he was regularly paying off the attendants with jerseys and shoes which were quite valuable for re sale. Brady refused to allow his attorney to provide the NFL with any pertinent text messages or emails from his phone to the perpetrators. The NFL investigator did not ask for the phone, he agreed he would trust Brady lawyer to examine the data and to forward any relevant text messages or email. Why would Brady not agree to this? Finally, your raising of the issue of heating up the footballs is hardly analogous to this incident of an organization which was previously caught cheating and how has apparently done it again.

chicago bulls jerseys cheap Basics of Futures and Options

nhl 14 jerseys Basics of Futures and Options

We have understood Derivatives and their market landscape. We met the key players therein. Now let us introduce ourselves to the instruments that give Derivatives their flexibility and make them lucrative for traders.

As we already know, in a Derivative market, we can either deal with Futures or Options contracts. In this chapter, we focus on understanding what do Futures mean and how best to derive the most from trading in them.

A Futures Contract is a legally binding agreement to buy or sell any underlying security at a future date at a pre determined price. The Contract is standardised in terms of quantity, quality, delivery time and place for settlement at a future date (In case of equity/index futures, this would mean the lot size). Both parties entering into such an agreement are obligated to complete the contract at the end of the contract period with the delivery of cash/stock.

Each Futures Contract is traded on a Futures Exchange that acts as an intermediary to minimize the risk of default by either party. The Exchange is also a centralized marketplace for buyers and sellers to participate in Futures Contracts with ease and with access to all market information, price movements and trends. Bids and offers are usually matched electronically on time price priority and participants remain anonymous to each other. Indian equity derivative exchanges settle contracts on a cash basis.

To avail the benefits and participate in such a contract, traders have to put up an initial deposit of cash in their accounts called as the margin. When the contract is closed,
chicago bulls jerseys cheap Basics of Futures and Options
the initial margin is credited with any gains or losses that accrue over the contract period. In addition, should there be changes in the Futures price from the pre agreed price, the difference is also settled daily and the transfer of such differences is monitored by the Exchange which uses the margin money from either party to ensure appropriate daily profit or loss. If the minimum maintenance margin or the lowest amount required is insufficient, then a margin call is made and the concerned party must immediately replenish the shortfall. This process of ensuring daily profit or loss is known as mark to market. However, if and ever a margin call is made, funds have to be delivered immediately as not doing so could result in the liquidation of your position by the Exchange or Broker to recover any losses that may have been incurred.

When the delivery date is due, the amount finally exchanged would hence, be the spot differential in value and not the contract price as every gain and loss till the due date has been accounted for and appropriated accordingly.

For example, on one hand we have A,
chicago bulls jerseys cheap Basics of Futures and Options
who holds equity of XYZ Company, currently trading at Rs 100. A expects the price go down to Rs 90. This ten rupee differential could result in reduction of investment value.

On the other hand, we have B, who has been tracking the performance of XYZ Company and given his intuition and expertise, feels that the stock price could increase to Rs 130 in the next three months. He wishes to buy the stock at a lower price now to sell later when the price increases in the future, thereby making a quick profit in the bargain. However, he can only pay a nominal sum now and arrange for the necessary funds to buy the stock in three months.

Now, A and B submit their orders to the Exchange to enter into a futures contract with a maturity period of three months (this is the maximum available time limit on the Exchange for the Futures segment). Once the orders are matched and traded, both traders hold their desired Futures positions as decided,
chicago bulls jerseys cheap Basics of Futures and Options
so now A would hold a short position against his holdings. Thus if the stock price fell below Rs 100, A would not lose the value of his holdings as he remains hedged against the lowering of price.

In the above example A would be the seller of the contract while B would be the buyer. A’s market position hence would be short (sell) while B would go long (buy). This thus reflects the expectations that each party has from the Futures Contract they have participated in B hopes that the asset price is going to increase, while A expects that it will decrease.

Futures are used to both hedge and speculate possible price movements of stock. Participants in a Futures market can profit from such contracts because they can enjoy benefits without actually having to hold on the stock until expiry. In the above example, B is holding his buy position with the expectation of a possible increase in the price until the contract expires and can also hedge his position by entering into a another Futures Contract with C as a seller, with the same Contract specifications ie quantity, quality, price, time period and location. B would thus, be able to deflect or offset any loss he may incur in his agreement with A.

To sum up,
chicago bulls jerseys cheap Basics of Futures and Options
Futures are leveraged standardised contracts with linear returns in reference to the underlying asset and are traded on a secure and monitored Exchange platform, thereby reducing credit risk.
